|I’m a simple girl. I grew up in a small town an hour north of Kansas City, Missouri. My family wasn’t perfect, but now I realize it was close.I left town at 18 to go to school at the University of Missouri.It was here in 2003 that I met the boy of my dreams. I was 20. Just a baby, though I didn’t think so at the time.In 2004 he asked me to be his girlfriend. In 2005 he asked me to be his wife.In 2006 we made it official.
We spent the next few years settling into our home, establishing our careers, getting our MBAs, and doing some really fun traveling.
And some other important, serious, grown-up things.
In 2009 we tried to start a family.
In 2010 we started the adoption process.
We went on to welcome our beautiful son in April 2012.
Those kids ended up getting adopted by another family; the details of their future will be forever unknown to us.
Our family story is still being written. Through the joy and through the pain, we feel honored to be chosen to be part of such a cool story. This is not the path we would have picked for ourselves. I don’t know where our little family story will end up, but I know I’ll experience it hand in hand with my Savior and the boy of my dreams.
Thanks for sharing it with us!
